    So I've loaded all my video from my iPhones over the years into iPhoto and have deleted the originals. Now the thing is a lot of my video is sideways so what I want to know is....what's the easiest way to rotate them? iPhoto doesn't rotate them?!?

    If it is a program outside of iPhoto to do this how do I go about it since I've deleted the originals and their in my iPhoto library.

    If you want to use another app to rotate them, such as Preview, you can export the pics from iPhoto, then rotate them in Preview, then re-import them to iPhoto. This is one of the reasons I don't use iPhoto. I prefer to handle photo files individually, without having them part of a database.

    He wants to rotate videos, GG, not photos.

    I take it that you mean you've take the video with the iPhone vertical, rather than horizontal? You can rotate it in iMovie, but all you'll end up with is your movie on it's side.

    Thanks! I missed that. I saw iPhoto and thought "photos". Chalk it up to another "senior moment"! :D

    Quicktime 10 will rotate videos. You can then save the rotated videos.

    How? I've just had a look and can't see anything for rotating. Rotate doesn't come up in QT Help either.
